This is a really disturbing release, in the good way of course. The music featured in this CD is a monument to the bizarre. Capture & Release is an album wrapped in crushing tones, distressing tunes, incredibly low bass-lines, and awesome/experimental execution.

The album has only two long tracks, so the musical progression is actually amazing, the band manages to create extended tunes with at least 1 progression each minute; the structures are also really complex, both tracks have a main riff all over the song, but the background and the ambience is what makes the songs astonishing and enjoyable. The band exploits the synthesizer way too much; actually the main vein of the backgrounds is the ambience, created obviously with that gadget.

Rating: 8 Great album but I think they got a little too drony on this. More structured songs like those of their debut will suit them better.

I disagree... To me they are at their best when they let go, specially on Things Viral, easily their best album.

Beside the fact that I simply prefer their debut, that album has personal importance for me. I really enjoyed it when I was not even into ordinary and non-extreme sludge metal. Also, I think that their debut was more unique, at least for me since I haven't heard many bands doing that sort of extreme sludge doom.
These does not matter after all, we both agree that this album is incredible.

No questions about quality as I love all their stuff but I would definitely debate the debut's uniqueness considering bands like Burning Witch (minus the massive feedback). I guess I prefer Things Viral more because it's more subtle than their debut which was a far more direct album. So I ended up discovering more things after each listen with Things Viral... But yeah, a certain personal factor comes in, discovered these guys back when I was 15 or so, when I started to get into the more fucked up corner of metal.

Note aside: I'm just talking about uniqueness within their discography, outside of that... I think they were always an unique band and franquily, it's my favorite Stephen O'Malley band.

burning which and moss are the only bands I could remember that are similar to their debut at the moment. Also, I said that their debut is more unique for me. You might be right that it's not that unique.
Also, it's my favorite Stephen O'Malley up to now, too.
Edit: you said uniqueness within their discography, so fuck my first two sentences in this reply
